    Any update regarding the missing free token?

    Andy passed the info on, he has no update as yet and that was yesterday he posted it.

    Already gone for the Liga NOS pack - got Felipe (would have been better if it was Militao... but definitely could have been worse!)

    Now will be saving up for Modric and that will probably be me done as I never get enough for the full 14 - usually get 10 or 11.

    Took me 3 games for the TOTS objective, 4 games on world class where I combined the Italian assists too.
    But the MLS one on professional is really getting to me. 4-0 up in the 55th min, need 2 more assists and my players just turned into sunday league bronze players...amazing.
    SB is such a painful game mode. I don't mind doing a couple of SB objectives at max, but this week is just too much imo.

    I hope they remove SB. It´s the worst mode and a stupid one. I don´t want to play against a team that does not reflect their real stats. I don´t want to play a game where my player hit the post 10 times. It´s just a waste of time.

    I played a lot of SB last Fifa but I’m not sure how. It feels like the most scripted game mode on the game. Played last night and I’d be holding the left stick immediately left, no angle whatsoever in the direction of Ibra, and my Futmas Lukaku tried to pass it to my left back instead.

    Got really frustrated considering it’s just an AI game, then I broke through, rolled it back to Ibra on his right foot 8 yards out in front of goal without a defender near him and he slides it wide of the near post, genuinely gobsmacked at the time, couldn’t believe it!

    For a lot of us it's really the only mode we can play, can't pause an online game 4 or 5 times when you've stuff going on in the house. I'd like Rivals removed but it is what it is.

    Squads Battle is the mode where all the bs we experience when we play other modes is multiplied by 10.

    I can get people disliking SB when there's an annoying objective but they don't usually take more than half a dozen games to complete, at the very most.

    Apart from that though, if you get four decent wins on legendary every week you'll finish in one of the gold slots, get around 10,000 coins and a couple of packs. Which seems like decent value particularly for more casual players.

    Exactly. No stress, no sweat, no one shushing and watching replays, and your players actually work properly. Sort of. Many people find playing against the AI pointless, but I'll take chill gameplay and relatively decent rewards over the online horrorfest, any day of the week.

    Would definitely like more variety but the mode itself is handy for us who have family things to be at and have to pause 5 or 6 times a game.

    Yeah for sure I don’t want it gone either but a bit more normalized would be great. One game I play a gold team that cant move and the next its a bronze team on steroids.

    I can even deal with that aspect, it's the tactics that need mixed up. Not 1 hope everyone uses the tactics we face in that mode.

    Someone should make a thread with all the info like how many players are released, how to get them etc. Then update the first page with all this info so people can find out what needs doing and for when. That would be really helpful.

    I was also struggling and decided to do it separately. Worked well and I've done it pretty quickly

    what an awefull game this is. I can alwas get till the last assist needed. At minute 70. all of a sudden no pass will go to your player. every shot blocked. so you need to play an extra game for that stupid assist. every week the same. EA is a lowlife ####

    Yep, this happens every time on these objectives. Imagine a game so messed up, it has to FORCE you to play another game rather than rely on the fact that you might actually want to.

    I don't think it wants me to get these futswap players. Every refresh is bringing 85, 91, 92 rated teams with full chem. My team, with FB Ibra, TOTS Quagliarella, FB de Rossi and an extremely robust defence including FB Sandro (bronze benched down to 80 rated) can't make a normal accurate short pass. And you can forget hitting the target with any force on a shot from inside the box.

    Of course, many of the AI players with 70 shooting are scoring bangers from 40 yards after 20 ping pong passes down the pitch. I hate this mode!

    @Andyzim try a 433 variation and stretch the. CPU defends the middle really well if you move from the very side of the pitch to other side you’ll get success seems to open holes in their defence.

    Also skill moves they kill the CPU
